The City Below

A by-chance meeting at a mandatory cultural event. Roland Cordes, 55, member of the board of a large bank, meets the wife of a new employee: Svenja Steve, 33. There is an immediate attraction between the two. When a bank manager is murdered in Indonesia, Cordes seizes his chance: he suggests Svenja’s husband Oliver for the position, even though there are better qualified people to take the job. But Cordes’ power is far-reaching and Oliver is transferred to Jakarta. From the fleeting meeting an affair develops that becomes more and more existential in nature. When Cordes’ scheme is exposed, however, Svenja suddenly ends the relationship. Deeply hurt, Cordes almost loses his mind. At the same time in Jakarta: Oliver is being threatened. Svenja begs him to return. In a dramatic night, Cordes gives up his position on the board of directors, Svenja jogs through a park at night, and Oliver stops to reflect for the first time in his life… It is morning. We see a hotel room: Svenja and Cordes, two players who can't keep away from each other...
